When Seidou Takizawa first saw Akira Mado it was the first time he had thought a girl was pretty. And not pretty like his mother or sister, but like…pretty. Of course, that had to be ruined the moment he found out how utterly annoying Akira really was but he still thinks she’s super pretty so shhh
After joining the CCG Academy Seidou had to learn how to do many things by himself. One of those things being: learning how to cut his hair, which he could never do very well. He reluctantly would go enlist the help of Akira, who had to hide her snickers when she saw his uneven and messy hair, that was longer in some places and much shorter in others.
Sometimes when Seidou would come to Akira for haircuts when his hair got too long she’d braid his hair, much to the irritation of Seidou, and Akira would just say that “she liked to practice”. She never told him that she took pictures of the braids, nor that she still has the pictures to this day.
Akira thinks Seidou looks hot extremely attractive when he wears suits. Especially when the sleeves are rolled up to his elbows and she can see his muscles. End of story.
Even though Seidou desperately wants to beat Akira as #1 in their class, when he sees for the first time that she’s struggling with a subject, he does his best to try and help her out with it. Receiving a rare smile from her was all the compensation that Seidou needed, really.
When Seidou learned that a group of kids had been cornering Akira because she got higher grades than them he was enraged. He knew she was more than capable of taking care of herself, but that didn’t stop him from going up to each and every one of those kids and telling them he’d mess them up in they kept messing with her. Sometimes being #2 in the class had it’s perks and the kids would scatter.
Akira overheard Seidou threatening the kids, and although she had already dealt with them, she never brought it up to him or let him know that she knew. She appreciated the thought more than Seidou would ever know, though.
